Last Minute Solutions to Achieve Your Holiday Glow

lady-eveningThe holidays are just a week away, and with it come good tidings, cheerful decor, and of course, holiday parties. This time of year, I am often asked by my clients, “What can I do to look my best?” Below are some great options that don’t require a lot of down time so that you will look fabulous right away.

  • Hydrafacials will give you immediate results. Here, at the Emory Aesthetic Center Spa, we use a device made by Edge Systems that exfoliates the skin while using solutions that plump and hydrate the skin. This treatment is wonderful for dry, dull skin, and the procedure takes approximately forty-five minutes with no down time.
  • Customized facials are also a great way to get ready for the holidays. I would recommend doing a facial a few days prior to any big social event, as you may be a little pink the next day. The Emory Aesthetic Center Spa customizes your facial based on your specific needs, whether it is exfoliation with thorough extractions or deep hydration. Your skin will look refreshed, clear, and hydrated.
  • Microdermabrasion is another great tool we use to help exfoliate the skin. This is a vacuumed device that uses a diamond-tipped hand piece that buffs away dead, dull skin. This allows new cells to appear and give skin a very polished look with no down time.

After the pressure of all the holiday parties comes a new year. This is the time many of my clients decide to commit to a skin care program. This may include micro-needling which typically includes four treatments, four weeks apart. Micro-needling stimulates collagen, helping to correct fine lines and wrinkles, and diminishing the appearance of any scarring.

Facial peels are an option and help with pigmentation issues and fine lines. Depending on your skin needs, multiple sessions may be needed. Intense pulse light (IPL) also helps with pigment issues such as sun damage, as well as redness from rosacea.

I always say that a good home skin care regime is necessary. Without that, anything you do in our med-spa is very temporary. It’s the same as working out at the gym and then eating fast food everyday. When you’re ready to start a skin care regime, it is important to meet with a skin care specialist. A licensed aesthetician can evaluate your skin and recommend the best products for your skin and lifestyle. I suggest purchasing your skin care in a medical setting. These products are considered cosmeceutical skin care, which means that they’re going to have much higher active ingredients in them than department store products. Typically, cosmeceutical products are also cheaper than department store lines. At the Emory Aesthetic Center Spa, we offer free skin care consults. We encourage you to bring your current skin care products with you at the time of the appointment so that we can evaluate what you’re using. This way, we are able to only add things if needed.

The Emory Aesthetic Center offers many different solutions to your cosmetic needs. Once again, it all depends on your needs, desired goals, and the time frame we have to work with. It is important to meet with on of our licensed aestheticians to help you develop a plan for you. It would be our pleasure to help you fall in love with your skin.
